Essence of Asian Heritage

Mai Thai Wellness Spa takes its name from the Thai word “mai” meaning “essence of”.  It refers to our ethos of Thai Inspired Wellness in Africa, harnessing the best of both worlds of healing and heritage.  It is also a word in reference to silk and the ancient silk roads that defined Thailand’s exotic history.

Relax & Restore

You will love our relaxing Day Spa inspired by the colours and textures of Thailand and Africa. We provide a welcoming ambience for guests escaping from the city’s hustle and bustle. The spa has five elegant pared down treatment rooms (two of which can be made into couples rooms). You will find high quality percale linen, palm leaf fans, delicate essential oil scents as well as decorative pieces, travel books and rich fabrics handpicked by the spa’s owner. Ensure you leave enough time after your treatments to relax in the spa’s beautiful  garden courtyard complete with the indigenous Portulacaria, also known as the ‘Spekboom’, the wonder tree native to South Africa.  Enjoy a cup of our delicious organic tea from the famous Tichaa Tea Room in Thailand.

We look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful little urban sanctuary spa with our special blend of South African and Thai hospitality.
